Dem Party Leaders, Pfizer, Moderna Involved in US Biological Activities in Ukraine: Russian MoD Sputnik News 3 hours ago

Senior Democratic Party politicians are the chief "ideologists" of America's illegal operations in biolabs operating throughout Ukraine, and have involved major multinational biotech companies in their activities, Igor Kirillov, the head of Russia's Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defence Troops, has indicated.

Speaking at a briefing in Moscow on Wednesday and citing an MoD analysis of documentary evidence, the RCB Troops chief said the profits US politicians earn for the private biotech sector helps to pay for their reelection via campaign donations.

According to Kirillov, the US executive branch has also worked to create a "legislative framework to finance military biological research directly from the federal budget," and with funds of non-government organizations underwritten by the state and controlled by the leadership of the Democratic Party, including charitable foundations affiliated with the Clinton family, the Rockerfellers, George Soros, and Hunter Biden.

State Structures' Involvement
Ukrainian state structures are also involved in the US-funded and organized military biological activities in their country, Kirillov said, with Kiev's main job being "to conceal illegal activities, conduct field and clinical trials and provide the necessary biomaterial."

In 2020, Kirillov said, an attempt was made to infect the residents of the settlement of Stepovoye in the Lugansk People's Republic with a multi-drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis using counterfeit banknotes contaminated with the disease's causative agent and spread among local youth.

Additionally, the RCB Troops chief said that his agency has received information detailing the Pentagon's experiments on Ukrainian nationals at Psychiatric Hospital No. 1 in the village of Strelechie, Kharkov region, with the research targeting male patients aged 40-60 with a high stage of physical exhaustion, and overseen by a US national.

The Russian military operation in Ukraine has stopped the spread of US military activities in Ukraine, and halted these "criminal experiments" on its civilian population, Kirillov stressed.

In the case of the research taking place at the Kharkov mental hospital, Western specialists were evacuated in January 2022, and the equipment and pharmaceutical preparations involved relocated to western Ukraine, he said.

Polish specialists have also been active in work at Ukraine's biolabs, Kirillov said, citing documents relating to the involvement of Poland's Institute of Veterinary Medicine alongside the US's Battelle Memorial Institute - a Pentagon contracts, on research assessing epidemiological threats and the spread of the rabies virus in Ukraine.

The complete document can be found here.

The German military has also been involved in research in Ukraine, Kirillov said, citing documents indicating that the Bundeswehr's Institute of Microbiology had taken some 3,500 blood serum samples from 25 regions of Ukraine back to Germany between 2016 and 2019. The officer said the Institute's interest in these biomaterials "raises questions about the goals [being] pursued" by the German armed forces.

Mariupol Samples Partially Recovered

An RCB Troops investigation of samples from Mariupol's vet lab has indicated that it too may have been involved in the broader US-led military biological activities, Kirillov said, pointing to the presence of pathogens uncharacteristic of veterinary diseases, including typhoid fever, paratyphoid fever and gas gangrene. Part of the lab's collection of samples was destroyed on 25 February, but due to the rush, part has been preserved intact, and is now being analyzed by Russia.

In all, Kirillov said, along with the Munich-based Institute of Microbiology, the Berlin-based Robert Koch Institute, the Loffler Institute in Greifswald, and the Nocht Institute of Tropical Medicine in Hamburg are participating in biological research activities in Ukraine.
...
One piece of evidence suggesting the high likelihood of such provocations taking place is the Kiev regime's request for personal protective equipment that provides protection against toxic chemicals and biological agents, Kirillov said.

The supply of organophosphate toxicity medications to Ukraine is also a concern for the Russian military, the officer noted, pointing out that in the first months of 2022, over 220,000 ampoules of atropine, as well as medicines for treatment and disinfection, have been delivered to Ukraine by the United States.

Additionally, Kirillov said, ten drones equipped with 30-liter containers and spraying equipment were found in the town of Kakhovka, Kherson region in late April, adding to three UAVs with similar equipment found in Kherson in March.

Would help explain the parade of personal visits of diplomatic missions to avoid surveillance of communications or deliverables by other nations states.

The way the US government has danced around the Geneva restrictions on bioweapons is
they proclaim the research is dual purposed. What has yet to be explained is how Fauci et.al
were able to fund 'gain of function' on viruses in Wuhan. Dual purpose? Bad and murderous.
It will take a huge amount of bleach to sanitize this one.
Germany and US investing in biowarfare in Ukraine will certainly get the Russians more
involved. And now China is investigating similar operations around their borders.
Thanks Obama ..

From RT

Kirillov also named Pfizer, Moderna, Merck and Gilead as “large pharmaceutical companies” involved in this scheme, using it to test medications while bypassing international safety standards. This reduces the cost of their research and development, Kirillov argued, and the increase in pharma profits “allows the leaders of the Democratic Party to receive additional financial contributions for election campaigns and hide their distribution.

Meanwhile in America more people slipped into poverty and more became homeless and millions more kids go to bed hungry.

Today the shitlibs are lecturing anyone who dares be critical of Biden and Democrats for not following through on their promises. Especially because… wait for it…. the midterms are coming up. And dammit if more people had voted for Hillary we wouldn’t be needing to criticize them. Even though she got 3 million more votes than Yrump! Damn Russia too.

....the Pentagon began an intense investment in unregulated bio-labs in Ukraine and along the Russian borderlands.

Fortunately, a Bulgarian journalist has dedicated herself to collecting data, documents, and leaked documents pertaining to the weaponization of pathogens that has been taking place in these unregulated US labs. Her work is very detailed. You will likely find confirming documentary evidence in the articles I've linked below. She details the types of pathogens and the ways they are being weaponized kill populations and devastate countries. The depravity of the research is breathtaking. The costs, and military contractors employed in these programs are revealed along with the injuries and fatalities to residents living near where the labs are located..

Potential pandemic bird flu modified to be more dangerous in new risky NIH research

Excerpt:

The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has continued funding risky gain-of-function research (GoF) on potential pandemic pathogens, newly disclosed information reveals. The US government medical research agency has funded scientists to study avian influenza (bird flu) which does not transmit among humans. However, the NIH projects aim to make avian influenza viruses able to transmit among mammals and assess their pandemic potential as a possible threat to humans. H5N1, a highly pathogenic avian influenza virus, does not transmit among mammals. The researchers aim to make the virus able to transmit in order to assess its pandemic potential.

These last NIH-funded experiments are just a small part of many controversial lab studies approved by the agency. One of them was the risky bat coronavirus research in China which is under investigation in the US for a possible link to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite repeated denials from NIAID director Dr. Antony Fauci including before Congress, NIH finally acknowledged last year that US did fund GoF research on bat coronaviruses.

The Lugar Center which is the partner laboratory for this research is a $180 million Pentagon biolaboratory in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi. It has been operated by a special US Army Unit – USAMRU-G, whose personnel have been given diplomatic immunity to research viruses without being diplomats.

The Lugar Center has become notorious in the last years for controversial activities, laboratory incidents and scandals surrounding the US drug giant Gilead’s Hepatitis C program in Georgia which has resulted in at least 248 deaths of patients. The cause of death in the majority of cases has been listed as unknown, internal documents have shown.

Entomological warfare is a type of biological warfare that uses insects to transmit diseases. Georgia borders on the US main rival – Russia. Moscow has repeatedly voiced its concerns about the potential development of biological weapons near the Russian borders, including the spread of diseases through insects.

Such fears are not groundless, considering a recent US patent for a Toxic Mosquito Aerial release system, granted by The United States Patent and Trademark Office in 2014. The invention includes a drone which can release infected mosquitoes.

Documents reveal some of the projects funded by the Pentagon. Among them projects related to Russia. The US Air Force has been specifically collecting Russian RNA and synovial tissue samples raising fears in Moscow of a covert US ethnic bio-weapons program.

@on the cusp still haven't been nailed down. One possibility that is rarely mentioned: China is a big country, the gov't's Big Brother ability may be and probably is overstated, and so it's possible there was in operation a rogue secret bioweapons lab with an agenda of its own which wasn't known to the authorities in Beijing.

There is a parallel on this to the way people in the west like to assume Putin is in charge of everything that goes on in Russia. Nonsense of course.

@wokkamile but I dunno about anything about anybody going rogue in China, regardless of the giant rural areas.
I have traveled through areas where the locals wash their clothes in the river, mutilate their kids to make a beggar for the family, and have been through a part of China where the locals only put on clothes if tourists are coming, or it is cold. There are no cell phones, computers, and surveillance cameras there, and nobody with enough education to do the surveillance anyway.
What I saw in large cities were people looking down, speaking in whispers. It would be suicidal to buck that government.

When it comes to collaborating with or perpetrating chemical and bioweapon war crimes:

From the 'Project 112' entry of Wikipedia:

(1945–1946) Transfer of Japanese Technical Information[edit]

Author Sheldon H. Harris researched the history of Japanese Biological warfare and the American cover-up extensively. Harris and other scholars found that U.S. intelligence authorities had seized the Japanese researchers' archive after the technical information was provided by Japan. The information was transferred in an arrangement that exchanged keeping the information a secret and not pursuing war crimes charges. The arrangement with the United States concerning Japanese WMD research provided extensive Japanese technical information in exchange for not pursuing certain charges and also allowed Japan's government to deny knowledge of the use of these weapons by Japan's military in China during World War II.[12] German scientists in Europe also skipped war crimes charges and went to work as U.S. employed intelligence agents and technical experts in an arrangement known as Operation Paperclip.[13]

The U.S. would not cooperate when the Soviet Union attempted to pursue war crimes charges against the Japanese. General Douglas MacArthur denied the U.S. Military had any captured records on Japan's military biological program. "The U.S. denial was absolutely misleading but technically correct as the Japanese records on biological warfare were then in the custody of U.S intelligence agencies rather than in possession of the military".[3] A formerly top secret report by the U.S. War Department at the close of World War II, clearly stipulates that the United States exchanged Japan's military technical information on BW experimentation against humans, plants, and animals in exchange for war crimes immunity.[13] The War department notes that, "The voluntary imparting of this BW information may serve as a forerunner for obtaining much additional information in other fields of research."[14] Armed with Nazi and Imperial Japanese biowarfare know-how, the United States government and its intelligence agencies began conducting widespread field testing of potential CBW capabilities on American cities, crops, and livestock.[3]

It is known that Japanese scientists were working at the direction of the Japan's military and intelligence agencies on advanced research projects of the United States including America's covert biomedical and biowarfare programs from the end of World War II through at least the 1960s.

in the Russian's initial statements about the Ukraine bio labs they mentioned research on use of migratory birds as disease-carrying delivery vectors.

Turns out the US military, in cooperation with the Smithsonian was involved in just such questionable research back ing the 60's and 70's as part of the military's SHAD program carried out in the Western Pacific as part of Project 112:

Live Ammo: Testing of Biochemical Agents on U.S. Sailors

December 2, 2006
By Mark J. Rauzon

The Pacific Project exposed U.S. sailors to biowarfare and chemical agents. Forty years later, some of these sickened warriors are still ‘lost’ at sea.

In all, we were to learn, 50 or so operations had been conducted during the ‘60s by about 20 ships transporting more than 6,400 sailors. The Granville S. Hall and the George Eastman were the flagships of the fleet, with five tugs as the workhorses in the experiments. In a typical test, the ships were deployed as targets arrayed in lines, diamonds or other patterns, with vessels at five, 15, 30, 50, 75 and 100 miles downwind of the dissemination line. The boats would “lay to” at night along the line, waiting for a Marine A4D Skyhawk or Marine F-4D Phantom jet to swoop by, “capping the T” at the top of the line with an aerosol spray.

During the initial tests, three simulants were used: the “harmless” bacteria Bacillus globigii, a stand-in for anthrax; Serratia marcescens, another bacteria; and the “benign” chemical zinc cadmium sulfide. Subsequent tests used the “real McCoy,” and the sailors later decontaminated the ships with beta-propiolactone and ethylene oxide, harsh disinfecting cleansers.

The first open-air “hot germ” tests took place in 1965. Operation Shady Grove was conducted over the Pacific downwind of Johnston Atoll, about 800 miles southwest of Hawaii. In the final phase, barges loaded with rhesus monkeys were “challenged” with weaponized Q fever and rabbit fever. The monkeys were doused and taken to Johnston Atoll. Half of them died.

Johnston Atoll

And what of the exposed sailors? That’s proven a lot harder to pin down. Because the nature of the tests was kept hidden from the public for so long, those serving on the Hall and Eastman have had a difficult time telling their secrets, even when they’ve come down with debilitating ailments. For years, no authority would acknowledge that their illnesses might be related to biological warfare experiments in the Pacific. Their initial petitions to the Veterans Administration (now the Department of Veterans Affairs) for medical assistance and compensation fell on deaf ears.

Finally, in 2001, the rumors I had first heard about the Pacific Project were confirmed when the Pentagon—under pressure from Congress and following investigative reports in the New Yorker and on CBS News—reluctantly admitted that the U.S. had conducted a sweeping test program involving chemical and germ warfare agents.

But just what happened to the so-called test conductors culled from the ranks of the Navy remains far from clear. At the time of the tests, some of these human guinea pigs reported respiratory irritation, illness and skin rashes. Because the cleansers and the simulants were not considered a health risk then, some sailors were not required to wear protective clothing or equipment during all the drills. Nor were their intake levels measured.

Later it was determined that for those with immune disorders, the supposedly harmless bacteria and chemicals could cause infections, allergic reactions, cancer—even death. As if this weren’t enough, both the Hall and Eastman had previously participated in atomic bomb tests, and rumors were that portions of the ship frames were eventually cut away because they were radioactive.

Little wonder that later in life, the vets reported diseases such as pancreatic and kidney cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a progressive neurological disorder called spinocerebellar degeneration, sarcoma, tumors, blinding headaches, lung problems, varicose veins and birth defects in their children.

and from that bastion of conspiracy babble Washington Post

By TED GUP
May 12, 1985
Twenty years ago, a team of Smithsonian researchers landed on a string of remote Pacific islands to study the comings and goings of sea birds -- terns, albatrosses, gulls. But there was another reason they were there, one stamped "Secret." The leaders of this scholarly band of curators and ecologists reported their findings to military scientists whose interest was not birds but biological weapons.

The Pacific project was two separate missions existing side by side: the Smithsonian's and the Pentagon's. The Smithsonian was only too eager to be given funds to study bird migratory patterns and the military was eager to find "safe" sites for atmospheric testing of biological weapons in the Pacific. Such sites could be determined from the Smithsonian research.

An Army spokesman says military scientists wanted to be certain germs would not be spread beyond the test sites by migrating birds. Other military scientists also wanted to know if sea birds could be used as carriers of biological weapons, winging deadly disease across borders. In military terms, birds could be "avian vectors of disease."

rest here

So now we're supposed to believe that the US, which is on record as having conducted such work and effectively using its own military personnel as test subjects would never be involved in such a thing.

Yeah, sure.

First step is realizing we have a problem and not letting it once again slither away into darkness to hide once again.

Second step is for some realizing you or someone you personally know had their life altered by such deliberately planned programs.

Third step increasing awareness until the tipping point of actual permanent dismantlement of such programs, with consistent monitoring to prevent them from restarting.

https://www.dw.com/en/are-russias-claims-of-ukrainian-biological-weapons...

The Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), which entered into force in 1975, prohibits the development, production, acquisition, transfer, stockpiling and use of biological and toxin weapons. But there's a fine line between military and civilian research and development, experts tell DW, which can be easily exploited for propaganda purposes.

The Russian allegations center around pathogens that cause plague, anthrax and diphtheria. Richard Guthrie, a British expert on chemical and biological warfare, believes such allegations are a common element of contemporary propaganda because rumors of biological weapons have such a powerful psychological effect.

"The main purpose of biological weapons is not necessarily to make a large number of people sick, he says, but to spread fear — "so that people don't want to go to a certain food or water source," for example.

A number of German biological weapons experts who have analyzed the Russian claims on behalf of the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy at the University of Hamburg agree that stoking public fear is the main objective, and allude to Russian "misinformation." "There are bioweapons labs in Ukraine which are supported by the US and also Germany, but the research conducted there is not covert but extremely transparent," says Gunnar Jeremias, an expert on biological arms control."

Extremely transparent. That must have been why Vicky Nuland was so concerned about Russia getting their hands on the things in the labs that no one knew about before Russia found them.

Guess it’s not surprising that you are defending our creating bio weapons to use against Russia. BTW there are many other sources that back up what Sputnik wrote.

@Fishtroller 02 current documents released by the Russian Military of Defense. In more simplistic terms the DW article says - don't look at any information, we are the experts and can advise on the opinion you should have regarding the subject.

To my knowledge, Sputnik was the first English publication of the new information and has links to the new released documents if any one is interested in doing primary research.

This can not be confused with veterinary research (Sputnik article).

In 2020, Kirillov said, an attempt was made to infect the residents of the settlement of Stepovoye in the Lugansk People's Republic with a multi-drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis using counterfeit banknotes contaminated with the disease's causative agent and spread among local youth.

Democrats have hauled in the CEOs of social media and demanded that they censor ‘fake news' and Biden has setup a ministry of truth in DHS and the gal running it is the biggest spouter of fake news and has ties to Hillary and the CIA. The Atlantic council writes lots of fake news articles and they get their funding from the government, the Saudis and lots of other nefarious sources. The NY Slimes and Washington post take stenography from the state department and the other intelligence agencies. But sure it’s Russia that is keeping the truth from their citizens.

"Is it any wonder that Western governments are massively censoring all critical, independent media? Searching the internet now just brings up approved Western media sources. Hardly any Russian media views are permitted and neither are critical, independent Western perspectives. This draconian suppression of free speech and information by the West is part of their war propaganda campaign aimed at giving the warmongering media free rein to spout their preposterous and pernicious lies unchecked. The implications are shocking. Western states are devolving into totalitarian regimes that at the same time have the audacity to pontificate about democracy and freedom. They largely get away with this absurd audacity because the profiteering corporate media are bought and paid for to be dutifully dumb and obsequious. There is an increasingly vicious circle of toxic Western militarism aided and abetted by so-called media that more accurately should be referred to as the “ministry of truth”."
